    I just picked up a G-35 and I want to get a .357 sig barrel.

    I am thinking about a Federal Arms barrel for two reasons, it is under $100, and the Guns-n-Stuff warehouse is like 30 minutes from me so I dont have to pay shipping.

    Any suggestions?

    I am also planning on reloading for .357sig. I have a few questions,

    1. Do you have to lube all the cases?

    2. Can I just use Accurate #5 like I do for all my other reloads?

    3. Does anyone reload on a Lee 1000 progressive?

    4. Anyone else shoot .357sig from their G-35?

    I don't know about Federal Barrels but I have heard mixed reviews on them. I have a KKM in m G35 and is is a tack driver. I don't reload so I have no comment on that.

    I got the Federal barrel, seems to work fine, I have only put 100 rounds through it. The rifiling dosent seem as deep as, the accu-match and storm lake barrels I have seen.

    I need to start reloading for .357sig, I can afford to buy that crap!
    Wish my dies would get here!

    I ordered a Federal Arma .357 barrel for my G35. I will have it maybe tomorrow. Maybe next week. $88.

    I have a KKM .357 barrel for my G35. Accuracy is great and I don't see the need for a more expensive Jarvis or Barsto barrel unless you gonna shoot off a ransome rest. As for KKM vs. Federal Arms..I've heard mixed reviews about FA barrels. I've never heard anything negative about a KKM barrel yet. Stan

    $88 Shipped?

    I think the accuracy of the .357 sig is excellent. Recoil isnt bad in the G-35. I use .40 for practice and .357 for defense.

    I thought I would be smart and go to Federal Arms store and save on shipping. I forgot since they are in MN I have to pay tax! Damn. Ended up being $105 out the door.

    I think I will order my next one (9mm) from topglock and save on tax.

    Yeah, I have one of these barrel, made by Federal Arms. Mine was about $70 because I did a group purchase that resulted in a 25% discount (buying five or more barrels, mix-n-match, qualifies for the discount). Also, mine is made out of barrel-grade steel, not stainless, so it is black (blued), and matches the finish of the G35 well. It is accurate and as reliable as a factory barrel.

    I have a KKM .357SIG barrel for my G35 (also have a KKM 9mm conversion barrel for it) and I couldn't be happier. I bought it from a fellow GT member, previously owned, but unused for $100 including shipping.

    Where can you find one that is blued? I've only seen them in stainless.

    There was a period, a couple years ago, when Federal Arms changed their .40 Auto and .357 Sig barrels to barrel-grade steel, because they were looking for a different grade of stainless steel. I bought mine during that period. Now, they're available only in stainless steel.

    I've always thought the G35 would be the perfect platform for the .357 SIG. The longer barrel should maximize velocity and the target sights and trigger enhance the shootability of this intriguing little cartridge.

    Have any of you chronographed any loads (factory or handloads)?

    What kind of groups are you able to shoot with this combination?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Thanks

    Dont have a chrono.

    Accuracy is better than excellent, even at long range. It seems there is hardly and bullet drop even at 100yards. I think it would really be a tack driver with a KKM or Barsto barrel, but as it is the gun can out shoot me.

    I am guessing the velocity is about 75fps higher based on the length of the barrel. Although with 11gr of bluedot it sounds like a cannon. I always get looks at the range.
